My daughter has gone to Adams for 7th and 8th grade and has loved it. Teachers are great and push the students academically.

My initial review of this school was positive but after 2 years this school is going down. The teachers are not teaching and the principle does nothing when you bring your concerns to her. I am pulling my children out of this school.

My review is to help other parents to understand we've experienced similar bullying issues and saw lots of other great students going thru unnecessary and extremely difficult bullying situations. Yes, you may find bullies at other schools, but we send our kids expecting the adults/professionals who run the school to protect them from bullies, and you would think by now Adams would be experts on this matter but their not! We really liked most of the Adam's teachers, however dealing with the administrative offices is frustrated, they are very unprofessional and uncooperative when it comes to handling the "bullies"! I hope you continue to have good experiences with Adams BUT don't make an opinion about other parents and their situations trying to make Adams a safer environment for learning. Kids often kill themselves because of bullying, you should respect our concerns and constructive criticism also be grateful that is not your child who has had to experience it. Thank you

Bullying problem is out of control. I agree with the other posts here. My kid is a social, involved sports minded boy. For the the first year we went through all the "right" avenues to help stop the bullying without any success. So t the beginning of the second year when the bullying started again I refused to deal with it so I enrolled both my kids an Anti-Bullying/Youth Self Defense class then told them, "a bully can say whatever he wants but if they lay a hand on you defend yourself and use all force necessary to restrain them until an adult comes". The classes they are taking at Triton by John, a former professional MMA Wrestler, is giving them the confidence they need to walk through the halls at Adams knowing they can protect themselves if it comes to that. I am happy to report since they have started taking the anti-bullying/self defense classes I have not had either son get in the car after school with a story of a problem they are having with some bully at school. Sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands and in this case I know we have made the right decision.
